How would you like to hang out in Hendrix's old apartment? Or, at least have a look around... "Hendrix pinned shawls to a wall, piled rugs on the floor and decked the mantel with ostrich feathers... The apartment was next door to the former home of a German-born composer as famous in his day as Hendrix was in the late 1960s: Georg Frideric Handel. Handel lived in the Georgian house at 25 Brook Street for 36 years, from 1723 until his death, and since 2001, it has operated as a museum. The trust behind the museum also holds the lease on the upper floors of No. 23, and in February, Hendrix’s apartment, recreated with period artifacts and reproductions, opened to the public in an unlikely coupling of the Baroque and the psychedelic." http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/24/arts/music/hendrix-and-handel-slept-here-a-museums-strange-bedfellows.html?smid=fb-share&_r=0

With a refitted Jimi Hendrix wing, the London museum Handel & Hendrix, celebrating two musical masters, expects 50,000 visitors in its first year.
